Belvedere Palace Austrian Gallery
The Belvedere Palace, designed in baroque style in the early eighteenth century by Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt for Prince Eugene of Savoy, is home to the Austrian Gallery. The Upper Belvedere houses pieces of Austrian art from the 19th and 20th Centuries. The remarkable collection contains paintings by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, Hans Makart, Oskar Kokoschka, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Richard Gerstl and many others. The Museum of Medieval Art and the Baroque Museum are situated in the Lower Belvedere. Romanesque and Gothic wood sculptures and altar panels,a comprehensive collection of works by Maulbertsch, Messerschmidt and Donner can all be visited in the splendid summer residence of this former military commander. After visiting the Museum, don't miss a walk through the elegant parks and also the Alpine Gardens. Call ahead for more details.
Not including the beautiful gardens and architecture throughout the exterior, the interior and all of the wonderful artwork that is houses is utterly amazing. "Der Kuss" by Gustav Klimt is breathtaking as is the infamous massive portrait of Napolean upon his mount. I highly recommend visiting the Belvedere as well as Schloss Schoenbrunn.
